Mission Accomplished!

I was fortunate enough to have the weekend off, and what better way to spend some quality time than to visit my favorite antique store and browse for some lucky finds.  And was I ever lucky...take a look at these pristine, vintage brass findings I acquired for a steal, along with some fabulous antique earrings and shoe clips I'm exited to use for future collage projects!

VINTAGE EARRINGS AND SHOE CLIPS
LOOK AT THE DETAIL!
JUST GORGEOUS!

So you wonder what I have in mind for these beautiful pieces?  Here's a quick concept:

AFTER

And here's a quick sneak peak at some current collage pendants and vintage necklaces I'll be posting to Artistic Adornments soon! AND...I just completed my first polymer clay pendants and I am SO HAPPY with them.  I can't wait to share!

The necklace on the left was made with a vintage shoe clip
Almost finished! Check back soon...
